On our second day in Norway, it was my 28th birthday!
I lazed in until 10am, whilst my partner popped to Godt Brød Bakery.
He came back with cinnamon rolls, custard cinnamon rolls and delicious coconut and custard cakes. He also got some cherries as I fancied fruit and some fresh orange juice, which I had in my new cup.
All of which was delicious! We saved some of the cakes for later as they was so filling.
And then it was time for presents!
I asked my family mostly for money rather than presents, as I want to go shopping for some new clothes and other pieces.
But my partner went all out on gifts.
He knows I love beauty products, face masks and bath bits, so I’m super excited to use all my gifts from him. He also bought me this really beautiful silver ring, which I tried on when we was away in Caister recently.
(I’ll be doing a post on all my presents soon).
After a lovely, relaxed morning, we walked to the Harbour area of Bergen to take a three hour boat tour to Mostraumen and back.
The weather was a bit wild and windy, but somehow it felt refreshing. We was cruising through the sea, through fjords and mountains and it felt amazing to be at one with nature.
One of the highlights of the trip was getting up close to a waterfall, where fresh mountain water was collected in a bucket. Cups of the fresh water was handed out and it tasted amazing!
After a fantastic three hours on the water, we was back in Bergen. As the rain persisted, we got a taxi straight to Vestkanten for the next part of my birthday celebrations.
Vestkanten is a shopping centre with other indoor activities such as bowling and ice skating. We browsed the shops for a while, before playing three games of bowling, two of which I won!
I wanted to go bowling for my birthday as we hadn’t been for a while and it was a lot of fun.
After bowling, we ate at nearby Peppes Pizza. We ordered a pizza each and I got a mixed veggie one with avocados.
We also got a side of Dirty Potatoes, which was potato wedges with sour cream and salsa, which was delicious.
After a fun evening, we got a taxi back to our apartment. We spent the evening watching new TV shows and eating birthday cake.
My partner ordered my cake from the bakery Lie Nielsen and collected it in the morning when he got breakfast.
It was a soft sponge cake, with fruit and cream that just melted in the mouth. It was a really beautiful cake.
We stayed up until the early hours before heading to bed, ready for day three.
